You may have heard of the cosmetic process known as microneedling. The treatment has gained considerable traction in recent years due to its effectiveness in helping the skin generate collagen. And while it’s no secret that microneedling leaves one’s skin visibly smoother and more youthful, how it works is another matter entirely.
What is Microneedling?
This is a cosmetic treatment designed to rejuvenate the skin for a more youthful appearance. It can reduce the visibility of wrinkles and scars. It is also known as collagen induction therapy.
How Does It Work?
Microneedling works because of its unique ability to encourage and promote collagen growth. The process uses a device that looks somewhat similar to a rather large pen. As the device is moved across the skin, it creates many tiny micro-channels. This triggers growth factors. New blood vessels are formed and blood flow is encouraged. Subsequently, new collagen fibers fill the dermis.
Also, the microneedling process causes the skin to repair itself. When the skin repairs itself, it’s much stronger than before.
Why Do People Choose Microneedling?
There are plenty of reasons why people choose to receive microneedling. Let’s take a look at some of them:
As we age, the tell-tale signs are more obvious in certain areas than others. The face is one of these areas. Microneedling helps to combat the appearance of wrinkles, lines, and scars in the overall facial area.
When you look better, you feel better. Many people start to find themselves growing somewhat self-conscious as the signs of aging appear. By reducing these signs, a boost of confidence is usually gained.
Microneedling wields relatively fast results. As the weeks go by, you’ll see improved skin and less visible blemishes.
Microneedling is known to be a very cost-effective treatment. Part of this is because it helps your skin care products to work better. As such, you won’t have to spend as much money on these products since you won’t have to use as much. An attractive factor of microneedling is that the treatment helps the body restore its natural beauty itself, without the help of foreign substances.
